Your motherboard keyboard controller is not initializing completely. The three LEDs shows the keyboard is powered and initializes, but the motherboard keyboard controller looks to be bad. I assume the keyboards work on other computers. Make sure there are no jumpers on the motherboard for the keyboard. You said the video screen is stuck on CMOS BIOS logo and is trying to continue with a missing keyboard or keyboard error. So since it got to the BIOS screen, pretty much everything else came up.
cannot acces to bios, cleared the bios how did you do this if the keyboard was not working ? During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or the F2 key Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the using arrow key scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option hope this helps you

three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be

Hello, I would first try to reset the CMOS according to the manufacturer's instructions provided on the manual. Try that, and please report back the results. You might wonder what is CMOS? Complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) is a type of semi-conductor chip that holds data without requiring an external power source. In a personal computer (PC), CMOS holds the basic instructions the computer needs to initialize its hardware components and boot up. These settings are known as the basic input output settings (BIOS), also referred to as CMOS settings.
Steps to Reset CMOS - BIOS Setting.
Turn on your computer and press the key on your keyboard to enter the BIOS. This is typically the Del (delete) key. Pre-built systems from major manufacturers may use a function key such as F1, F2, or F10.Go to the last tab or page of your BIOS.Select an option similar to "restore factory settings".Save your changes and confirm your selection if necessary. This will often be combined with the process of exiting a BIOS. Some BIOS types may have this as a separate option such as "F10: Save Changes". Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns. Thanks.
boot in bios and reset the intrusion to read and clear it out alot of times the bios will use its backup when cleared clear the ir setting as weel and remove any passwords in the security setting in the bios if you are using a pov card you may have to take it and reset the machine then disable the card funtion reinstall then reset the card from there
First, remove all the peripherals and addiotnal hardware attached to the computer except the mouse, keyboard and the monitor and try booting the PC to the Safe Mode.
You can press and hold the F8 key after the Acer logo when the PC boots to access Safe Mode.
If you are able to boot to Safe Mode you can perform a System Restore to see if it resolves the issue.
To perform System Restore:
Click the Start button, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click System Restore
If the issue still persists, you can open the computer case if you are comfortable with that. After that we need to clear the CMOS Battery and try accessing the BIOS.
Final resolution would be a One Button Recovery. It will delete all the data from the C drive of the computer. So, you may have to backup the data from the hard drive connecting it another working computer if you don't have a backup with you.
You can also use the Recovery CDs to perform a Recovery, if you have created them.
